SASC Guidance Documents

SASC and its subcommittees are a collaborative and ‘umbrella’ group of professionals working in a similar field to agree standards of practice. No single organisation or individual dominates. SASC strives to bring about change through consensus. Decisions and guidance go through a consultation process with the organisations involved in SASC and, where possible, with a wider audience of individual assessment practitioners, academics, trainers and teachers/tutors.
